James A. Lowe and David P. Staley of Mariah Associates, Inc. conducted a Cold War materialculture inventory at Loring Air Force Base, Maine, between July 18 and 21, 1994. This project toascertain extant Cold War resources important to the base's Cold War context and to the Cold Warnational history was conducted as part of the Air Combat Command Cold War Study under theongoing Department of Defense Legacy Program. On site inspections were conducted to inventorythe resources. This was then augmented with information gathered from the Civil Engineering,Public Affairs, and Wing History offices. During this inventory and research, resources wereidentified and then photographed.The team selected four resources to further document and evaluate as important to the base's ColdWar context: the Bomber Alert Facility, two Large Aircraft Maintenance Docks, and a SegregatedStorage Igloo. These facilities represent the United States Air Force alert posture, deterrentcapability, and weapons delivery potential during the Cold War.
